A Princess And Her Room

Bev and Terry

There are those common names in the quilting world. In Central Oregon the list would include Bev Piper. She was introduced to quilting while standing in line at a Woolworth's, the year 1969. She wondered what that lady in front of her was going to do with all those beautiful fabrics? When the woman explained she was making a quilt and what that meant...Bev thought she was nuts! What she didn't realize is that "quilt nuts" are infectious and she had been exposed! Although she went home and started sewing pieces of left over clothing together, it wasn't until 1983 that she truly dived in!


She enjoys every type of quilting but, it is applique that is her first love...after Terry. In looking at her stash you can tell she is an appliquer. Lots of fat quarters! She likes the needle turn method and her work is beautiful.


Bev has been a "Quilt Teacher" for many years, teaching at the Quilter's Affair in Sister, The Stitchin Post, Sew Many Quilts and currently at QuiltWorks. She was the 2010 Featured Quilter at the Mt. Bachelor Quilt Guild Show and was one of the 2009-2010 Community Quilt Chairperson.

Her DH, Terry is the Material Girls "Honey Do" and comes highly recommended by Bev who has benefited from his expertise in building quilt rack, tables, rooms and homes! Enjoy the slide show of the beautiful quilts she creates.

  4. I think that quilt rack is the really neat, a way to display your quilt tops before they are quilted!!! I am sure Mr. C&W could whip you one up Anne!
